  • I have been on Vivitrol since 10/2012, on Lasix since 4/2013
    My hip and leg pain is worsening and my daily life is effected by this pain. I walk differently d/t the pain, I can't exercise without pain. Is it due to the monthly Injections of Vivitrol that they alternate Right/Left in my back side. Not sure what the long term effects of Vivitrol are, but I certainly have become more debilitated since I statred recieving these injections
